Chevrolet’s electric revolution is getting a bigger focus as the company unveils the 2024 Blazer EV, ahead of its official launch on July 18th.
Nothing to look like the ICE-powered model, the performance-based SS variant has a sporty front fascia with an illuminated boutique. They are joined by a pronounced black ‘bar’, which seems to be a completely enclosed meal.
Going further back, we can see the glossy black cladding and flowing bodywork. Note the recessed front fender charging port that has already been seen in the previous teaser.

Other notable highlights include a rake windscreen that flows onto a sloping roof. The model features an aerodynamic side skirt, two-tone alloy wheels and a flowing beltline reminiscent of Volkswagen ID.4.
Although the Chevrolet didn’t show the rear end or reveal the interior, previous spy photos showed that the model would have a small rear window and narrow taillights. Inside, we can expect a high-tech interior with a digital instrument cluster and a huge infotainment system.
Chevrolet will release additional information next month, but they say the model is “evolving from antiquity” and will offer “a groundbreaking blend of style, performance and technology.” It doesn’t have much, but the Blazer EV will ride on the Ultium platform and probably has some similarities with the Cadillac lyric.
While this remains to be seen, the electric luxury crossover has a 100 kWh battery pack that produces 340 hp (254 kW / 345 PS) and 325 lb-ft (440 Nm) of torque for a rear-mounted electric motor. This setup gives Lyric an EPA-estimated range of 312 miles (502 kilometers) on a single charge. An all-wheel drive lyric will follow early next year with a dual-motor powertrain that develops a combined output of about 500 hp (373 kW / 507 PS).
No word on pricing at the moment, Blazer EV is set to launch in the spring of 2023.
